At 4:30 PM on Thursday, September 10th, 2015 you can head over to Justin Herman Plaza to see Ellie Goulding and Train perform live.
Hey, you know who’s hosting Super Bowl 50? That’s right, “the San Francisco Bay Area” is. (Shhh. Don’t tell our SFGov City Family about that.)
Speaking of which, SFGov is probably looking forward to getting some national attention for something other than the shooting of Kathryn Steinle.

A Walmart-Style “Greeter” for Civic Center? Controversial CBD Pays Good Money for “Nighttime Ambassador?”Wednesday, July 15th, 2015
Here’s where our money goes, for better or worse:
“CBD Adds Civic Center Greeter for Improved Safety at Night
In June, the CBD started an experiment to see if we could impact safety, both real and perceived, by adding one nighttime ambassador dedicated to the entrance and elevator area of the Civic Center Parking Garage.
Over the past year, the arts organizations have received complaints from patrons saying they feel unsafe when they walk back to their cars at night because of the lack of other people in the area. The CBD believes that this is impacting people’s willingness to park in the garage and it impacts traffic flow, congestion and pedestrian safety on busy nights as people circle the blocks looking for parking.
After two months, the CBD will evaluate the program”
Hands-Free? Free to Do What, Spank Your Monkey? SFPD Says Porsche Driver’s Phone Sex Causes Collision with TreeTuesday, May 5th, 2015
I would Like this SFPD Facebook entry, but I don’t know how! (Isn’t that sad?)
Anyway, make up your own jokes here:

Stealth Prius, Market Street – No Headlights, No Problem – Why Oh Why Won’t Prius Drivers Turn on Their Headlights at Night?Thursday, February 19th, 2015
Fucking Prius drivers, man.
The guv’mint oughta rewire every last Prius to have all the lights on whenever the vehicle is ON, you know, Canadian-style. ‘Cause the way things are now, Prius drivers can’t seem to tell that they’re driving around without headlights.
Black paint, no headlights, nighttime? Sure, let’s cruise Frisco:
Fucking Prius drivers, man.
IDK. I’d need somebody to spell out all the rules.
Anyway, this skateboarder was prolly a tad too aggressive to be in compliance with Frisco’s rules, whatever they are…
What It’s Like to Stay at a Mid-Market Hotel for $60-Something per Night: “Budget Inn,” 1139 Market StreetThursday, November 13th, 2014
Well, here’s an upbeat take:
Hotel Tour : Budget Inn San Francisco CA by DieselDucy:
Compare that with Yelp – a very low one-star rating:
“I want to leave, but it’s already 1am and we are both too afraid to leave our locked room. We get 4 hrs or interrupted sleep (the walls are paper thin and the doors have cracks in them), pray that we didn’t get exposed to tuberculosis, hepatitis and/or herpes and book it out of there. Trust me folks, this place isn’t worth the $60. I’ve stayed in $15 hostels while traveling though Europe that were both cleaner and safer than this place.”
And there’s this:
” If you have less than $150 night for a decent place to stay, youre actually safer just camping at golden gate park than any of these SROs…”
And there’s the bedbug allegations, natch.
